    Hi, I am Olivia.

    I'm glad to be part of this forum.

    About 5 years back I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

    While having a Saturday night dinner with my family I suddenly went unconscious and the next thing I know I was lying on a hospital bed with my family members by my side.

    Then the doctor gave the worst news of my life that I'm suffering from type 2 Diabetes.

    After a few years of struggle and not finding the solution, I met an old friend who helped me controlling my type 2 diabetes.

    Since then my blood sugar levels are under control and I'm living a normal healthy life.
